ABSTRACT

Introduction: A 51-year-old woman was diagnosed with a rare case of multi-focal ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast associated with Poland syndrome.

Clinical Picture: Physical examination showed mild hypoplasia of the left breast with microcalcifications on mammogram. Intraoperatively, there was complete absence of the pectoralis major, which precluded the insertion of a breast implant.

Treatment and Outcome: She underwent a skin-sparing mastectomy and autologous microsurgical free flap reconstruction with deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap. Postoperative recovery was uneventful with no evidence of recurrence at 6 months.

Conclusion: This is the first reported case of DCIS of the breast with Poland syndrome. We performed a skin-sparing mastectomy with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction. Patient recovered well postoperatively with no evidence of recurrence at 6 months.


We report a rare case of multi-focal ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast associated with Poland syndrome. A skin-sparing mastectomy of the left breast with immediate reconstruction using ipsilateral deep inferior epigastric perforator (DIEP) flap was performed.
